Euripides, Rachel Cusk

PaperBack (25 Sep 2015)

World premiere of a new version of Euripides’ classic Medea. Plays in London as part of the Almeida’s Greek Season.

Medea’s marriage is breaking up. And so is everything else. Testing the limits of revenge and liberty, Euripides’ seminal play cuts to the heart of gender politics and asks what it means to be a woman and a wife. One of world drama's most infamous characters is brought to controversial new life by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (The Merchant of Venice, King Charles III, American Psycho) and award-winning writer Rachel Cusk (Outline, Aftermath).
